About Hilary Gallagher

After graduating with an Honours degree in Physics from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Hilary worked in a number of social welfare settings around the world before deciding to transfer to social work. Hilary then studied a Diploma in Social Work, the professional qualifier at the time, concurrently with a Research Masters. Hilary is a qualified social worker and has worked in health, disability, mental health and community settings in Scotland and Australia. Her research and practice interests centre on field education and social justice issues particularly with regards to people who have a disability.
